About this book
The book introduces and discusses the future trends in computer science and artificial intelligence. These trends include image and speech technologies; virtual reality and multimedia systems; evolving systems and artificial life; artificial and natural neural networks; brain-computers; the Web, the intelligent agents on it, and the distributed processing systems; mobile robots in a real and in a virtual environment; bioinformatics, and the marriage of genetic engineering and information science. The book comprises chapters written by well-known specialists in this field and can be used by scientists and graduate students from different areas, as well as by a wider audience of people interested in the present and future development of intelligent systems, in all areas of information sciences.
